Kisah Ama dan Akong

Kisah Ama dan Akong

Kisah Ama dan Akong
Seorang kakek menyuapi istrinya (sang nenek) yang sedang sakit. Terlihat sangat menyentuh dan mungkin inilah salah satu saat paling romantis dalam hidup sepasang manusia.

Apalah arti kata “I love you“ (aku mencintaimu) bila hanya sebatas di mulut tanpa tindakan nyata (saling menjaga, mengasihi , dan berjanji setia untuk seumur hidup hanya dengan seorang pria/wanita sebagai pasangan)?

Si kakek ini, seumur hidupnya tidak pernah mengucapkan “aku cinta kamu.” Ketika ia melamar calon istrinya (si nenek), hanya tiga kata yang diucapkan: “Percayalah kepada saya.”

Ketika si istri melahirkan anak perempuan pertama, laki-laki itu mengatakan: ” Maaf ya, sudah menyusahkan kamu.”

Ketika anak perempuannya menikah, si istri merasa kehilangan dan si suami ini hanya merangkulnya sambil mengatakan: “Masih ada saya.”

Ketika si nenek itu sedang sakit parah, ia mengatakan kepadanya: “Saya akan selalu ada di sampingmu.”

Ketika si nenek sakitnya makin parah dan akan meninggal, si Kakek hanya mengatakan kepada istrinya: “Kamu tunggu saya ya.“

Seumur hidup, ia tidak pernah sekalipun mengucapkan “aku cinta padamu”, tetapi “CINTA”nya tidak pernah meninggalkan dia. Cintanya diwujudkan dalam hidup keseharian mereka. Seumur hidup tindakan dan perbuatannya selalu penuh dengan CINTA.

Walaupun sulit menemukan pasangan seperti cerita di atas ini, tapi pasti ada pasangan-pasangan yang demikian kuat rasa cintanya di dunia ini. Semoga demikian pula untuk semua pasangan yang sudah memutuskan untuk hidup bersama.

Jadilah Akong & Ama paling romantis, versi Anda masing-masing :)

The Road to Success

The Road to Success
Writer: Suhardi

The Road to Success
there was a time, a man was walking in a place to search for treasure. Until finally, he arrived at a fork of three. Incidentally there are parents who were standing on the edge of the crossroads.

He was confused because there are three roads leading in different directions. He was hard to decide not to choose the way you want to go. Then he asked the old man, "Hey, old man. May I ask? I was on my way looking for treasure. But in front of me there are three different paths. Can you show me the right way?"

The old man did not answer. He just pointed the way first.

The man thanked her and immediately take the first road.

A few moments later, the man who'd come back again. But this time his whole body stained with mud. He approached the old man and said, "Hey, old man. Just now I asked directions to the treasure and you are pointing to the first street. But I'm actually stuck into the mud pool area. My body would get dirty like this." He then asked, "Now where the path to the treasure? Please show me!"

The old man remained silent. He then pointed to the path of the two.

The man then thanked her and immediately take the latter path.

A few moments later, he was back again. Her body is not only exposed deep mud, but also filled with torn pants and leg injuries such as scratches something.

This time he approached the old man with facial expressions kesal.Ia said with a little angrily, "Hey, old man! I was just asking directions to the treasure and you are pointing to the latter path. But, the road was full of brambles. My whole leg so injured by scratches of thorns. "

This time he asked, "Now I ask you again, where the road to the treasure? You had twice lied and hurt me. Once again lied, you will know the consequences."

The old man remained silent, without removing a word. He is now pointing to the road to three.

"Are you confident and do not lie?" he asked.

The old man nodded his head and once again pointed to the third street.

The man immediately left the old man. But a few moments later, he returned again as he ran like scared. With shortness of breath, he asked angrily, "Hey, old man! Do you want to kill me? On the road there was a lot of wild animals. That is tantamount to looking dead."

The old man finally opened his mouth, saying, "All the roads were actually able to go to the treasure. It's just to get there, you have to go through that path. You can choose the past a pool of mud, thorn bush, or wild animals. You can select one. If you really want to go to where the treasure, you must dare to pass through one of them. If you do not want, please return it. "

Once mendegar explanation of the old man, he bowed his head. He backed up, canceled his trip and return home ...

Message to readers:

I'm sure everyone in the spirit will answer "Yes" when asked if they want to achieve success. But most do not dare to answer when asked if they are willing to pay the price. The fact that often happens is that many people are not willing to take the path of success that looks very heavy. They just want to directly reach the finish line, but do not ever want to put step to achieve the finish line.

One of the challenges you face while struggling to achieve success is to push yourself to go forward despite the way that you are very heavily traveled, winding, and full of obstacles. The challenge is what often makes a person become shriveled balls. The challenge is what ultimately led to a lot of people do not dare to pay the price of success. They are not prepared to pay and would prefer to forget they want to achieve success.

No matter what goals you want to accomplish, obstacles still exist and will not be lost. Where there is success, there are obstacles that obstruct it. Only successful people who dare to face the hurdles after hurdles to finally reach the goal. Instead people prefer to surrender failed. And more sadly, they do not even dare to try to see how hard the journey that must be passed. Mentally they are already defeated long before they start.

Obstacles will always stand in front of success. You have to dare to pass through before it managed to get success. There are two choices, complain and blame the hurdles it or push yourself to overcome these obstacles. You may blame the obstacles that seem to always facing you. But try to think about, whether that barrier will disappear by way of spilling your resentment? No way!

Change Action and Achieve Wonders
A man was waiting to be thrown off a plane in an airport lounge. Hose 30 minutes later, a voice that comes out of the speakers told the passengers that the flight number so the purpose of X immediately boarded the plane.

The man then boarded the plane and find a seat according to ticket. Incidentally he sat beside the emergency exit or emergency exit doors. Not long later after all the passengers were on the seat, there came a flight attendant who approached the man.

Beautiful flight attendant told her, "Excuse me sir. Incidentally you sit beside the emergency exit. For that we request your cooperation. If something comes up and forced to land an emergency, please open the emergency door you this so that passengers can get out of an emergency. For more details, please read the safety instructions in the instruction book. "

The man rose to nod their heads to understand what the stewardess was. Then he and another flight attendant immediately provide safety instructions to passengers when the plane began to walk slowly toward the runway.

The plane managed to takeoff and the air leaving the airport. Everything was progressing normally and no problems at all. But in the middle of the journey, the aircraft engine suddenly problematic and should be made an emergency landing. The passengers panicked. They were asked to wear a safety vest and pray that does not happen.

The man was sitting beside the emergency exit immediately remembered the words of the stewardess had to immediately open an emergency exit in case of problems. So he immediately opened the emergency door. He tried to open, but the door does not open. At the moment the plane closer to the mainland, he was increasingly panicked and pushed with all his strength, punching and even kicking the door. But, the door still will not open.

He began to surrender. He thought his life would soon end. Emergency door would not open and he would not make it out alive. But fortunately, turned out to be an emergency landing the plane safely though a little crushed. All passengers survived and none were seriously injured although many of them were so shocked.

Aircraft door finally opened and the passengers and immediately rushed out to save themselves. The man had come out at a rapid pace. Fortunately nothing happened that gruesome. All breathe easier because of the critical period has passed.

He was then recalled by the flight attendant who was giving instructions to him. He was soon looking for and finally succeeded him. He said with a little angry, "You told me to open the emergency exit, but the door did not open."

Then the flight attendant replied, "The door is functional and not damaged."

The man replied in exasperation, I pushed and kicked the door until my hand away in pain, but still not open. "

Hearing the man's explanation, the flight attendant sighed and shook his head and said, "The door must be pulled, not pushed, opens a new can. Are you'd read the instruction book?"

The man's face red with embarrassment. He said, "I do not read it."

Message to readers:

The story above may be common in most people. They are doing something, but when they want to get different results, they instead continue to do the same thing over and over again. That's called "crazy" by Albert Einstein, who refers to people who keep doing the same action and hoping for different results.

If you plant an orange seed, then you will harvest oranges. If you do not want to oranges, but apples, then you have to plant an apple seed. That's a simple analogy. But many people are stuck with a lemon seeds to plant, hoping to harvest apples.

Often success can not be achieved because it is not sensitive to the results obtained and continue to do the same. In fact one of the success formula is flexible with the action we take. If we take actions that continue to bring disappointing results, that means we have to change and take different actions. If it fails again, we must act again in a different way until we succeed. That is what is called flexible.

Many people are not flexible. As a result, they keep doing the wrong thing. Even they do not realize that such actions bring them in the wrong direction. No wonder many do not understand why they still have not succeeded yet been acted and never give up.

Often success is so close to us. The distance to within a degree of flexibility of our actions. If it is not flexible and keep doing the same action is wrong, then do not expect success to come even though the success was so close. Is it possible to see the sunrise, if you always run to the west?

Distinguishing Intonation mean

Distinguishing Intonation mean

Once, on one day in a small village, a carpenter received a letter. Because of illiteracy, then hurriedly went to a butcher he knew, who had a strong character, to ask for help reading the letter.
Distinguishing Intonation mean
 "It's a letter from your son," cried the butcher. "Here he said: Dad, I'm sick and penniless cent. Please send me some money as soon as possible. Your son. "Thus, the letter was read in a voice loud and harsh tones by the butcher. Instantly the carpenter was angry. He said, "You ungrateful child! So she is, can rule me, father? Do not think I'll send him cent! "

In his anger, he returned home. But the journey, he met his friend, a tailor who soft-spoken. So he told me about the letter earlier.

"Why do not you see my boy this letter!" He said.

The seamstress then read the letter in her gentle, calm, and clear.

Suddenly, another very meaningful letter. The carpenter had to be sad. "Oh my poor!" She said anxiously. "He must have suffered, I'd better send her money now."

A wise friend ...

The message is very dependent on the manner of delivery. Often, the conflict between couples, friends, or colleagues, arises not because there is a large and complex problem that can not be solved. But because we can not manage to deliver a thing.

Please note: for example when we disagree with the opinion of someone, you should convey to the patient, friendly, and clear. So who heard it will be easier to accept / digest and more contention can be avoided.

Come, learn to behave better in the "wrap" message that we want to convey.

Author: Ade Rai

Why there are two sides of view of a thing?

The answer lies in the MEANING we CHOOSE to give to the sport activity itself.
Who regard sports as a consideration SUFFERING:
- AVOID SHORT TERM Passion of exercise such as aches and fatigue.
- LOOKING FOR SHORT TERM PLEASURE by choosing to use his time to activities other than exercise, such as sleeping, eating, and others.

Who regard sports as a PLEASURE to have consideration:
- AVOID THE LONG-TERM miserable from not exercising as fat accumulation, the onset of degenerative diseases that are often delivered in the doctor's verdict, and others.
- LOOKING FOR LONG TERM PLEASURE by choosing to stay healthy, fit, strong into old age, so do not bother children and grandchildren, even can continue working and provide for longer mercy to anyone he loves.

All of this back to the meaning we give to something, in this case SPORTS. Another word of meaning is a CHOICE WE DELIVER IN FOCUS.

We can choose to focus on sport as miserable, or we can choose to focus on sport as MEANS, STRATEGY to achieve an outcome that we desire in a way that FUN .

Choice is in our hands. And ... just as our choice to interpret NUTRITION & REST REGULARLY.

How To Avoid Negative Thoughts - 3 Proven-To-Work Methods

How To Avoid Negative Thoughts - 3 Proven-To-Work Methods

Glass Wrecking hammer , but Hammers Forming Steel

Glass Wrecking hammer , but Hammers Forming Steel
Glass Wrecking hammer, but Hammers Forming Steel
What is the meaning of the ancient Russian proverb?

If our souls fragile as glass, then when the mallet / hit problems, we will easily discouraged, frustrated, disappointed, angry, and so despondent.

If we are the glass, then we are also vulnerable to collisions. We're easily offended, disappointed, angry, or hurt while we relate to others. Little impact has been more than enough to destroy our relationship.

Do not ever be a glass, but be steel. Mental mental steel is always positive, even grateful when a problem remains and the circumstances that was really hard squeezing.

Why is that?
People who like this always assume that "the problem is the process of life to shape it for the better". A piece of steel who would be a more useful tool after first processed and shaped with a hammer. Every blow is painful, but the mental steel to realize that it's always good to him.

If today we are being oppressed by the problems of life, never respond with the wrong attitude!
If we are "steel", we will always see the hammer that struck us as friends that will shape us.
Conversely, if we are "glass" then we will always see the hammer as an enemy who would destroy us.

Xiaofeng Peng - Success For Learning and Courage

Xiaofeng Peng - Success For Learning and Courage 

Writer: Tim 

Many young people today because of internet based business aiming to make money easy, cheap, and get rich quick. But work on the real sector (production of goods) is also able to create new millionaires from the capital does not amount to much. One of them was Peng Xiaofeng, a young Chinese-born, 34 years ago. 

Unlike the young, successful businessman from the West who tend to drop-outs (such as Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook or Bill Gates at Microsoft's launch), Xiaofeng develop because of active learning. In addition, he is also smart as seen from the track record of brilliant education, always top three in school and never Mathematics Olympic champion in his country. 

During high school he not only English language courses, but also taught himself Japanese and Germans did not find the place after the course. After graduating high school he continued his studies at the School of Foreign Trade, Jiangxi to achieve the diploma in 1993. After that, pursuing MBA at Beijing University Guanghua School of Management which she completed in 2002. 

But success can not be achieved easily. Xiaofeng undergo several stages of life before pursuing a business that made him one of Asia's richest young people in the world. Began when he worked in Jian City Bureau of Foreign Trade, an export development agency in the province of Jiangxi. At this institution he served analyze China's foreign trade.

He also volunteered to come out of the city of Jian foregin Trade Bureau to better manage their own business seriously. 

However, the institutions of local government resign because its performance is quite good. Somehow the story, Xiaofeng really got the idea of ​​establishing his own company that manufactures safety equipment. Then the Jiangxi provincial government is willing to invest. From Suzhou Industrial Company Limited Liuxin standing, cooperation with local governments Jiangxi company. With the founding of this company has integrated business Xiaofeng between safety equipment manufacturers (through Suzhou Liuxin) and marketing company (Liuxing Industry). 

Good relations with local governments also take advantage when he had the idea to develop a Solar Power Plant (PLTS). One time in 2001, because he often served to represent a European company, Xiaofeng realize how Europe increasingly intensive use of PLTS. This idea appears. He wants to encourage the Chinese government to develop well and he supplies the panel suryanya PLTS. But it was not easy because he is blind to technology. 

Fortunately the spirit of learning never subsided. After studying here and there even to visit a solar cell factory in the U.S., in 2005 he established the Jiangxi LDK Solar Co. Ltd., a manufacturer of solar panels and its supporting products. He is very tactical raise money. Before the plant was established he marketed it to the provincial government of Jiangxi. And after the government can be convinced and willing to buy products for PLTS will be built in the province, he sought a loan. It is not difficult to obtain capital when the buyer is certain. From this stand Jiangxi LDK Solar Co. Ltd..

 The company began to produce solar cells from raw materials, installation, maintenance and other support. Before long he was getting lots of orders. Even he could export it. This business is not so much in the world, probably because its application has not been popular. Xiaofeng now owned company became the largest supplier of solar cell industry in the world.

According to estimates by Forbes magazine, his wealth reached U.S. $ 2.5 billion, or around Rp 21.2 trillion!

There are successful in our Hands grip
The story illustrates that the real forces that determine our future lies in our ability to maximize its potential. Those who are optimists will always be aware of the situation himself gratefully. With grateful they were able to maximize what he has. This is what will lead us to independence, do not rely on others, because we believe we have the ability.

Everyone is certainly different from the others. Each has advantages and disadvantages. Then, if someone is born with physical deficiencies, lack of opportunity for the schools, lack of geography or area of ​​residence, parents are poor, have no chance to be a successful person?

If that fact, why many people with disabilities, for example, can be successful by defeating a normal person? Why is Stevie Wonder, the singer who was born without sight, can be successful and become a living legend who beat them normal? Why are the people who once poor are now able to enter the World Forbes Billionaire row or rows of the richest people in the world?

Only those who believe that success is in the hands of his own and dare to fight desperately to be successful. This is exactly the philosophy that I often say. Success is My Right! Success is our right! Therefore, no matter what our potential, let us know it, let us strive for. Success was waiting for us!

In  Fate's in our Hands grip

Politics  always bear his heroic example.  Helle Thorning-Schmidt's victory  in the Danish general election 15 September 2011  reminded the world that these women politicians never give up. As a woman, he faces a big challenge to achieve that position.  He must convince his people that a woman can lead Denmark.

His struggle has been a long time he did and failed at the election victory of 2007 when just one step away. Now he is waiting for the inauguration to become Denmark's first woman Prime Minister as well as showing that the emancipation of the country's going well.

In Indonesia, the struggle for the emancipation of women has always identified with RA Kartini. Now many Indonesian women who become leaders within small organizations, enterprises, ministries, and even became president. Kartini message has been practiced.

Actually the essence of the message is universal and self-reliance doctrine implies that thick. Meaning not only for women but men as a whole. That one's fate is determined by the people themselves, not by others. Success is determined by the person himself, rather than relying on people for help.

However, mesothelioma has been reported in some individuals without any known exposure to asbestos. In rare cases, mesothelioma has also been associated with irradiation, intrapleural thorium dioxide (Thorotrast), and inhalation of other fibrous silicates, such as erionite. Some studies suggest that simian virus 40 (SV40) may act as a cofactor in the development of mesothelioma.

Asbestos was known in antiquity, but it was not mined and widely used commercially until the late 19th century. Its use greatly increased during World War II. Since the early 1940s, millions of American workers have been exposed to asbestos dust. Initially, the risks associated with asbestos exposure were not publicly known.

Treatment Mesothelioma
However, an increased risk of developing mesothelioma was later found among shipyard workers, people who work in asbestos mines and mills, producers of asbestos products, workers in the heating and construction industries, and other tradespeople. Today, the official position of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the U.S. EPA is that protections and "permissible exposure limits" required by U.S. regulations, while adequate to prevent most asbestos-related non-malignant disease, they are not adequate to prevent or protect against asbestos-related cancers such as mesothelioma.

What is mesothelioma?

What is mesothelioma?, Free Accutane Case Evaluation Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos and symptoms may not appear for as long as 20 to 40 years after exposure. Mesothelioma is a cancerous tumor of the mesothelium. The mesothelium is the tissue made up of specialized cells called mesothelial cells which line the chest cavity, abdominal cavity, and the cavity around the heart. These cells also cover the outer surface of most internal organs.

 The mesothelium produces a special lubricating fluid that allows organs to move around within the body with less friction. For example, this fluid makes it easier for the lungs to move inside the chest during breathing.

 The mesothelium of the chest is known as the pleura. The mesothelium of the abdomen is called the peritoneum. The mesothelium of the pericardial cavity, which is the space around the heart, is called the pericardium.

 Mesothelioma is a cancer that attacks any of these mesothelial regions.

What is mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a cancer of the cells that make up the lining around the outside of the lungs and inside of the ribs (pleura), or around the abdominal organs (peritoneum).

What does asbestos have to do with mesothelioma?

The only known cause of mesothelioma in the U.S. is previous exposure to asbestos fibers. Asbestos manufacturers knew about the hazards of asbestos seventy years ago - but they kept this knowledge to themselves. The first warnings to workers exposed to asbestos were given in the mid-1960s, and they were terribly inadequate. Even today, workers are not always told they are working around asbestos and are at risk for asbestos disease.

What can someone with mesothelioma do?

Seek out the best and most up-to-date information.

Seek out the best medical care.

Early screening for mesothelioma diagnosis.

Stay in close contact with your doctor.

Consider whether or not you want to bring a lawsuit because of this asbestos-related injury.

Remember that resources are available to you through community and medical support groups, asbestos victims' organizations, your place of worship, as well as your family and friends.

understand how to choose a lawyer for this disease, you should first understand the basics of the disease. In the simplest sense, mesothelioma is a cancer of the protective layers of the body cavities, known as the mesothelium.

These tissues have different names depending on the organs they protect. You have probably heard of the peritoneum–this is the covering around the stomach and intestines. Other organs and cavities have their own membranes as well.

Mesothelioma is a cancer of these tissues. They often do not just affect the tissues–they affect the organs they surround and can spread elsewhere. This cancer is most often contracted by exposure to asbestos, a highly dangerous mineral often found in floors, ceilings, and some products.

Employers and landlords are supposed to protect you from asbestos, but often this does not happen. If you have mesothelioma you have probably been exposed to asbestos. If so, you should contact mesotheloma attorneys in your area to see if you have a case against the party responsible for your exposure.

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, your oncologist may be your best source of names for attorney contacts. She will likely have already worked with them on cases and can tell you not only who specializes in your type of cancer but who is best and who is within a short distance from your home or work. If she does not have the right kind of specialist, there are other ways to find the right professional for your case.

You can check with other doctors who deal specifically deal with mesothelioma if your doctor is more of a general oncologist. These doctors may have worked more closely with mesothelioma lawyers in your area of southern California. You can also call local hospitals, various cancer support groups–area law schools are also excellent for references. Also check your union or professional group if you were exposed on the job.

Regardless of where you find your contacts, interview the lawyer, check on his or her background, and get references if you can. If you are ill, the last thing you need is more trouble.

Former British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, had words of wisdom are timeless: A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity, an Optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity, an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. No different from the objects facing the pessimistic and optimistic. There is only a different perspective. The optimist looked at him with positive thoughts, while the pessimistic with negative thoughts.

Having positive thinking had to be socialized and trained constantly so that someday will grow into the character. But how to cultivate this habit? The following tips can be useful.Verbal affirmations every dayWhen we encounter a problem or opportunity, there are two possibilities that could be done. We felt able to cope or do, but on the other hand would doubt our ability. Technically, we are in fact very capable of doing it but we pulled uncertainty in a static manner so that we can not do anything.According to some experts, the best way to overcome this problem is to do affirmations, that is to say positive words to us. In the morning after waking up, say to ourselves that we can do anything we want. Such "You can!" or, "You can do it!" The louder our words more able to influence our subconscious. Do it every day for about 10 minutes.Use positive wordsUsing positive words have a good influence. An expert named Dr. Susan Jeffers says, "No matter whether we believe in the words or not, but those words affect our subconscious." If we are accustomed to using negative words, the results of which we can negatiflah. So even if we always use positive words positive results that we will be.Attach a picture or writingAttaching the visualization of what we want will have a positive impact in the achievement. What we want to reach, attach pictures or words. Look at every opportunity, imagine what we will feel when can reach it. This will encourage positive thoughts.Fill around us with positive imagesThis could be a positive image of the words of motivational posters, inspirational images, even writing affirmations to convince themselves in a small card or paper paste which is easily seen.Because it gave the room decoration with posters or pictures that can arouse inspiration or pep up our confidence. One time when we're stressed, look, or read so that we will refocus on the desire we are pursuing.Often say "Thank You"Gratitude will affect our minds. Saying "Thank You" will publish a positive mind. But how many times a day we say "Thank You"? We may even forget to say thank you when, for example, helped people in the fall. Yet more often grateful, the more positive thoughts awakened.Listen to motivational descriptionListening to motivational exposure will build positive thoughts. We can hear the show on the radio or adjust motivational motivational CDs while driving on the road. It would be a kind of "charging" for our mental.

Mesothelioma-Dare to Forgive Others

Mesothelioma-Dare to Forgive Others
Authors: Andrie Wongso


Beginning in August 2011 there is interesting news from Iran. A beautiful woman who poured the acid damage to her face and her eyes blind to forgive the offender.The woman is Ameneh Bahrami, Iranian-born in 1978, which doused Majid Movahedi in 2004 because of rejected courtship. Movahedi was arrested while waiting for qisas punishment, ie punishment principled retaliation in kind, a kind of punishment "lives life to pay". In the case Bahrami, he may ask the court to blind the eyes of actors as they experienced.The court ruled the law qisas conducted on July 31, 2011 and broadcast live by television. A few seconds before the acid is splashed in the eye Movahedi, a doctor who would pour liquid Bahrami was asked, "What would you do now?"Movahedi was crying uncontrollably as she knelt. Fear of blindness and eye shadow incomparable pain that made her beg for forgiveness. Everyone was tense watch. A signal from the process Bahrami qisas punishment would be carried out. However, Bahrami was saying the words beyond expectations. "I forgive him, I forgive him," said Bahrami. Then the eyes of the perpetrator had survived.What a noble attitude Bahrami, he courageously forgiving those who have blinded him throughout his life. "The best thing is to forgive when we are in a position of power," Bahrami said explaining his decision. But there Bahrami mother saying that we ought to refer to. He said, "Forgiveness is going to calm Bahrami and our family."Friends of the Extraordinary,As I discussed in a live talk show on network Radio Sonora on Monday morning, to review the story "Do not Save the Potato Rot ', forgiveness is not easy. But forgiveness can calm us. Conversely, revenge is not necessarily eliminate hatred. Maybe it will grow a sense of guilt within us because of revenge after that we feel as bad as those who have made us suffer.Scientifically any excuse or forgive the other person has a positive value. The results showed that those who harbored grudges and nurture hatred, his life was not calm. Medically they have a high pulse (unhealthy), high blood pressure, and muscles tighten. If allowed to continue they could be having a heart attack. Instead, they are willing to forgive others, normal blood pressure, normal cardiac work, and his muscles relaxed. In short, a forgiving have better health records.The study showed that "forgive others" not only good for mental health, but also good for our physical health. Therefore, before Idul Fitri, which will fall a few days away, let's open the door of forgiveness. It would not hurt to forgive others, we even have the benefit of no measure.

saya juga tidak mengerti tentang SEO sama peraturannya aku kasih aja kata- kata motivasi untuk yang mengikuti kontes SEO yang di adakan oleh KBJ

  • Jangan tanyakan apa yang Negara berikan kepada Anda, tapi tanyakan apa yang Anda berikan pada Negara. ~John F Kennedy
  • Dengan keyakinan kita dapat memindahkan gunung, tapi tanpa persiapan kita dapat tersandung oleh kerikil.
  • Kerugian terbesar bukanlah saat mengalami kebangkrutan, melainkan saat kita gagal belajar dari kebangkrutan tersebut.
  • Jangan berlomba utk menemukan kesalahan orang lain, tapi berlombalah untuk menghindari kesalahan yang sama.
  • Percaya tidak selamanya harus melihat, sama seperti saat Anda terbang melintasi pulau tanpa perlu melihat sang pilot. Percaya sesuatu yang bisa dilihat oleh mata adalah logis, Percaya sesuatu yang tidak anda lihat adalah Iman.
  • Impian tidak akan menggerakan seseorang utk maju, alasan kuat dibalik impian itulah yg menggerakannya.

semoga memberikan motivasi

Penulis : Andrias Harefa

Bersediakah Anda mengerjakan apapun yang saat ini menjadi pekerjaan Anda, seandainya Anda tidak dibayar sepeser pun untuk itu? Bersediakah Anda menjual produk dan jasa yang sekarang Anda jual, seandainya Anda tidak mendapatkan gaji, insentif, atau komisi dari penjualan tersebut? Bersediakah Anda menjadi akuntan publik, seandainya Anda tidak mendapatkan imbalan uang sama sekali?

Bersediakah Anda melakukan pekerjaan sebagai dokter, sekalipun tak ada yang mau membayar Anda untuk itu? Bersediakah Anda bekerja sebagai pengacara, kalau hal itu tidak memberikan manfaat finansial bagi Anda? Bersediakah Anda bekerja sebagai insinyur sipil, arsitek, pembawa acara televisi, musisi, penyanyi, penari, penulis, ekonom, hakim, jaksa, polisi, tentara, anggota DPR, pejabat pemerintah, guru, pembicara, motivator, dan sebagainya, jika pekerjaan itu tidak mendatangkan uang buat Anda?

Jika jawabannya adalah YA, maka Anda sedang dalam perjalanan menuju sukses.

Begitulah salah satu nasihat Oprah Winfrey, ratu talk-show dunia yang kesohor itu. "Jika Anda bersedia melakukan pekerjaan Anda yang sekarang tanpa menerima bayaran, Anda dalam perjalanan menuju sukses," katanya. Sebab, jika Anda tidak digerakkan oleh motivasi uang, maka ada kekuatan lain yang lebih besar yang menggerakkan Anda. Kekuatan itu boleh disebut dengan nama apapun-inner power, the giant within, DNA sukses, hasrat inti, burning desire, the spirit of success, dsb-yang jelas kekuatan macam itulah yang menuntun orang meraih sukses.

Nasihat Oprah itu bisa juga dibaca demikian: "Jika Anda bersedia melakukan pekerjaan Anda yang sekarang semata-mata karena menerima bayaran, Anda dalam perjalanan menuju kegagalan." Sebab jika Anda bekerja setiap harinya sekadar untuk mendapatkan gaji setiap bulannya, maka pekerjaan itu pastilah bukan pekerjaan yang menantang bagi jiwa Anda. Pekerjaan itu hanyalah sekadar nafkah yang tidak mendorong Anda untuk meraih sesuatu yang lebih besar dari sekadar materi. Pekerjaan itu tidak menggali bakat-bakat, kemampuan, hasrat dan pilihan-pilihan terbaik Anda. Pekerjaan semacam itu tidak perlu terkait dengan ketetapan hati (pikiran-perasaan-kemauan), sesuatu yang justru sangat penting untuk bisa membuat Anda sukses.

Sungguh menantang untuk mengetahui "apa yang bersedia kita lakukan, sekalipun hal itu tidak mendatangkan uang. Sebab sejak kecil kita diajar untuk mengejar nilai baik dalam tiap ulangan dan ujian di sekolah, tetapi kita tidak diberi contoh bagaimana belajar secara baik. Akibatnya, kita belajar untuk mendapatkan nilai dengan cara menyontek. Kita tidak diajar untuk bersedia memilih jujur, sekalipun mendapatkan nilai jelek di rapor sekolah. Akibatnya kita terbiasa menganggap kejujuran sebagai suatu 'tindakan bodoh' yang harus dihindari sebisanya. Dan karena biasa menyontek, maka kita tidak biasa mempertanyakan minat-bakat-ambisi-hasrat kita yang terdalam. Kita terbiasa untuk menjadi ikut-ikutan, menjadi manusia rata-rata, menjadi bagian dari gerombolan yang tak punya tujuan, tanpa identitas, tanpa rasa tanggung jawab. Kita telah dikelabui oleh cara berpikir "habis sekolah cari kerja yang menghasilkan banyak uang secepat-cepatnya, dengan cara apapun juga".

Sungguh penting mengambil waktu memikirkan "apa yang bersedia saya lakukan, sekalipun hal itu tidak menghasilkan uang". Rutinitas kerja mencari nafkah telah mengaburkan pandangan banyak orang mengenai apa yang sungguh-sungguh diinginkan jiwanya, atau apa yang sebenarnya merupakan tugas dan panggilan hidupnya.

Rutinitas kerja telah menjadi belenggu baja yang memasung segala potensi, sehingga tak kunjung teraktualisasi. Rutinitas kerja telah membuat banyak orang lupa mengejar makna, mencari jawaban yang lebih baik mengenai apa sebabnya ia dilahirkan di bumi ini. Rutinitas kerja telah memasung kreativitas, menurunkan kecerdasan dari tahun ke tahun, sekadar untuk melakukan pekerjaan yang berulang-ulang, yang membuat otak berfungsi minimum, yang membuat hidup terasa membosankan. Rutinitas kerja telah membuat orang lupa bahwa kerja juga merupakan ibadah untuk mempersembahkan yang terbaik bagi Allah. Rutinitas kerja mengantar orang sampai pensiun. Lalu mati. Tanpa kontribusi. Tanpa makna.

Sungguh menarik untuk menemukan kembali, "apa yang bersedia saya lakukan, sekali pun hal itu tidak menghasilkan uang". Sebab usaha untuk menjawabnya akan menuntun kita masuk ke dalam batin kita, melakukan ziarah spiritual, mengaktivasi kembali kompas jiwa yang lama tersandera. Jalannya pasti tak mudah dan tidak bisa instan. Berbagai kerak dan kotoran batin mesti dikeluarkan lebih dulu, sebelum mencapai kebeningan hati. Persis seperti penggali sumur yang berupaya menemukan air bersih. Ia harus mengebor tanah sampai kedalaman beberapa meter, lalu mengeluarkan air berlumpur secara terus menerus, dengan tekun, dengan ketetapan hati, dengan keyakinan bahwa kebeningan menanti di kedalaman. Setelah menggali sekian puluh meter, ia mungkin baru menemukan air berpasir putih, yang menjadi penanda bahwa sumber air yang jernih telah dekat. Seperti itulah pula pertanyaan reflektif "apa yang bersedia saya lakukan, sekalipun hal itu tidak menghasilkan uang" perlu diselenggarakan. Dilakukan secara secara terus menerus, dengan tekun, dengan ketetapan hati, dengan keyakinan bahwa kebeningan menanti di kedalaman.

Berani mencoba? Refleksi macam begini, memang, bukan untuk orang pengecut!

The Wisdom of Giving

The Wisdom of Giving

oleh : Andrie Wongso

The Wisdom of Giving

Suatu hari, seorang pengusaha di Hong Kong tanpa sengaja menjatuhkan sebuah logam senilai satu dolar ke dalam parit yang sempit dan dalam. Dengan gelisah, ia berusaha untuk mendapatkan kembali uang logamnya tersebut. Seorang tukang sapu jalan yang kebetulan lewat dan melihatnya, berusaha membantu.

Tak lama kemudian, uang logam itu berhasil ditemukan kembali. Sang pengusaha begitu gembira. Ia mengantongi satu dolar tersebut dan mengeluarkan selembar uang seratus dolar dari dompetnya, lalu diberikannya kepada tukang sapu jalan itu. Sesaat tukang sapu jalan tertegun dan dengan penasaran ia bertanya, "Mengapa Anda lebih rela memberikan seratus dolar daripada kehilangan satu dolar di dalam selokan?"

Sang pengusaha tersenyum dan menjawab, "Bila uang satu dolar ini terjatuh ke dalam selokan maka saya akan kehilangan satu dolar ini untuk selamanya! Tapi bila saya memberi seratus dolar pada Anda, saya tahu bahwa seratus dolar saya masih berada di pasar peredaran uang, dan itu berarti saya bisa mendapatkan kembali uang saya. Mungkin dua kali, sepuluh kali, bahkan seratus kali lipat."

Bila kita ingin memberi berkat kepada orang lain, berarti kita juga harus memulainya dari memberi. Ketika kita memberi, berarti kita memiliki kemampuan, kemauan, ketulusan, keikhlasan, dan rasa syukur.

Kapanpun, di manapun, siapapun, mari berpikir dan berbuat (action)!

"Apa yang bisa kita berikan agar dunia ini bisa menjadi lebih indah, aman, damai, dan mampu menyejahterakan banyak orang?"

Apakah Anda takut untuk memberi?
